We begin a two week exploration of whether or not children have ever been utilized by US intelligence agencies in abusive programs. Have children been the victims of brainwashing, drug and mind control experiments?
There is more evidence right now that children have been abused in secret experiments than there was that adults were fed plutonium prior to Eileen Welsome's publication of the Plutonium Experiments.
That book won her a Pulitzer Prize and led to a presidential apology to the victims of those experiments.
It has proved more difficult to find hard evidence of official child abuse, in part due to the ferocious defense the intelligence community has mounted, and in part due to the work of organizations that claim that childhood memories of abuse are invalid.
Listen carefully to this and next week's shocking programs. Somewhere, there must be an investigative reporter with the capability of doing for the victims of this abuse what Eileen Welsome did for the plutonium experiment victims.
John Rappoport's websites are NoMoreFakeNews.com, and InSolutions.info.
Whitley Strieber writes, "For years, I have grappled with strange memories from early childhood that suggested involvement in some sort of abusive program. But I was never sure what these memories meant, until, in December of 2009, I received corroboration that has shocked me deeply."
Listen as Whitley details his memories, and also discusses just why it is that he feels that organizations like the False Memory Syndrome Foundation are not to be trusted.
There is evidence that children have been abused in efforts to induce split personalities, among other things.
What Whitley has to say will shock you. It will anger you. But it will also inform you about a hidden area of life that cannot continue to be overlooked, and a practice that must be stopped.
In 2006, Whitley Strieber wrote a journal about the Finders case, in which the CIA suppressed a Customs Service investigation into a pedophile network. Since then, he has been struggling to find another way into this case, and now he has. It is the searing book The Franklin Scandal, by Nick Bryant.
In this atomic blast of an interview, Whitley asks Nick the crucial questions that lead to an inescapable conclusion: there is, and has been for a long time, somebody engaged in the entrapment of the powerful by tempting them into abusive relationships with child prostitutes. So the question must be asked, how many of our leaders are compromised in this way.
You will never forget Nick Bryant's answer to the question: is this still going on? Whitley Strieber plans to send copies of the Franklin Scandal to everyone he knows in government, demanding that the suppressed records be released, and a new and honest congressional investigation be undertaken that deals with the specific issue of why both the CIA and the FBI have suppressed previous efforts to uncover the truth about this.

01/16/10 Subscriber Special: Peter Levenda and Nick Bryant
There is no expert in the world better equipped to go into the darkest depths of the Franklin Scandal with Nick Bryant than Peter Levenda. As the author of the massive Sinister Forces, which details the occult and satanic connections of far too many powerful Americans, Peter is uniquely informed about the deep evil of pedophile networks and their relationship to some of our most powerful political leaders, celebrities and media personalities.
Listen as Peter and Nick discuss the terrifying case of the assassination of ace investigator Gary Caradori, just as he was breaking the Franklin Scandal. But then they go beyond that, to discuss the fact that former CIA Director William Colby all but admitted that abuse had taken place in a documentary that has been suppressed.
They also discuss Colby's great personal integrity, his strong religious beliefs--and his mysterious death by drowning while canoeing barefoot on a cold and windy night. We he, also, murdered to keep the truth from coming out?
The FRANKLIN SCANDAL is the story of a nationwide pedophile ring that pandered children to a cabal of the rich and powerful. The ring’s pimps were a pair of political powerbrokers who used Boys Town as a pedophiliac reservoir, had access to the highest levels of our government, and connections to the CIA.
Nebraska legislators nearly exposed the ring in 1990, but its unveiling had the potential to produce seismic political aftershocks: a rash of deaths and a full court press by federal and local law enforcement effected an immaculate cover-up.
State and federal grand juries in Nebraska and a grand jury in the District of Columbia played an integral role in the cover-up, and the author has had access to thousands of documents that would ultimately be sealed by two of the grand juries.
The FRANKLIN SCANDAL will be the first book to tell the complete tale of a power elite pedophile ring in the US and also of the cover-up of its heinous crimes. Various news organizations have attempted to break aspects of this story, but the reports have either been ignored or mysteriously shelved. Major news agencies, including ABC, have backed away from pursuing this story; conversely, CBS abetted its cover-up. It’s obvious that very powerful people have a vested interest in safeguarding this secret.
Are Politicians Being Blackmailed?
This explosive question arises from the dynamic new book, The Franklin Scandal: Powerbrokers, Child Abuse and Betrayal by Nick Bryant.
The approval rating of the United States Congress hit an historic low of 12% in October 2008, showing that the vast majority of citizens think the Congress is not serving us, the American people. The Franklin Scandal shows a reason why. There is another checks-and-balances system in effect—one that has been hidden from the public: blackmail.
The Franklin Scandal exposes an illicit nationwide pedophile network and its ensuing cover-up. The victims (now adults) talk about flights all around the country, and there are hundreds of flight logs to back this up. The most frequent destination? Washington, D.C.—to a party house wired for pictures and sound.
The corruption overpowered local and state law enforcement in Nebraska, and a special committee was formed in the Nebraska State Senate to pursue the allegations. After the Senate committee’s lead investigator was killed, along with his 9-year-old son, in an exploding plane — any real inquiry stopped, and the cover-up continued. This book shows how a major part of that cover-up was accomplished, how officers of the court suborned their duties … and afterwards were given promotions: one is a sitting federal judge.
Webs of Corruption
The “lurid” tale of Franklin, to borrow an adjective from the New York Times in 1988, begins with Larry King. Not the CNN talk show host, but Lawrence King, Jr. of Omaha, who sang the national anthem at the 1984 Republican convention in Dallas, and throughout the '80s was described as a “GOP high-roller” and “the fastest rising African-American star” in the Republican Party.
Tall and corpulent, King had a fondness for flowers, fine tailored suits, expensive cars, mansions, chartered jets, and glistening jewelry. He had a hand in an array of businesses, but his day job was general manager of the Franklin Federal Credit Union, created to provide loans for Omaha’s underserved black community.
On November 4, 1988, federal agents descended on the Franklin Credit Union; the National Credit Union Administration would ultimately conclude that $39.4 million had been stolen. King was indicted on 40 counts, which included conspiracy, fraud, and embezzlement. Current Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas, then chairman of the Equal Opportunity Commission, described King as a “friendly person,” and said his legal travails were “unfortunate."
Larry King had been dogged by accusations of pedophilia for a number of years. Among the first accusers was Eulice Washington, who claimed King flew her to out-of-state pedophilic orgies. She had been adopted by relatives of King’s in the 1970s. Her new “mother” was King’s cousin Barbara Webb, and her new “father” was husband Jarrett Webb, who sat on the board of the Franklin Federal Credit Union. To Eulice Washington, King had been “Uncle Larry.” “Larry King set up the pedophile ring,” says Eulice. “From my knowledge and from what I saw go down, he was the man who got it moving and rolling. Everything went through him. … He loves boys. He loves them like he shouldn’t.”
Shortly after the Franklin raid, rumors of a nationwide pedophile network swept Nebraska, and in January of 1989 a subcommittee of the state’s legislature convened in Lincoln to investigate both Franklin’s looting and the whispers of far worse crimes. The subcommittee would be called the Franklin Committee, and it was chaired by the 64-year-old Loren Schmit, a corn farmer, stalwart Republican, and 24-year veteran of Nebraska’s legislature. The Franklin Committee had not even started its work when Schmit received his first anonymous phone call—Schmit told reporters for British television that the caller had urged him to drop the inquiry because it would reach "the highest levels of the Republican Party.”
Eulice Washington’s initial allegations of child abuse appeared in a 1988 report from Nebraska’s Foster Care Review Board, a state agency that reviews the plans, services, and placements of children in out-of-home care to ensure their optimum welfare. Though the report contained a series of allegations about King, its centerpiece consisted of interviews of Eulice by a Boys Town youth worker. Eulice stated that she and Boys Town students had been transported across state lines for sexual exploitation. After the Board requested a law enforcement investigation, its report moved through channels at the Omaha Police Department (OPD) and the state attorney general’s office in July of 1988. In the absence of child abuse indictments, the State House swelled with rumors of a cover-up..
In early 1989, the Franklin Committee issued a subpoena to the Assistant Attorney General, demanding that the Attorney General’s office surrender its reports relating to King and child abuse, but Attorney General Robert Spire refused to honor the subpoena. Spire’s investigator, Thomas Vlahoulis, would be called before the Franklin Committee and confess that he hadn’t interviewed a single alleged victim, and had referred all victim debriefings to the OPD.
The Omaha chief of police, Robert Wadman told the Lincoln Journal that the OPD had pursued all leads and found them unsubstantiated . “Every step that should have been taken was taken,” he said. Yet, Chief Robert Wadman would later confess that the OPD never contacted Eulice, and three months after Wadman’s remarks, the Boys Town youth worker who had interviewed Eulice told the Omaha World-Herald that the OPD had never contacted her either.
In February of 1989, the Franklin subcommittee’s chief investigator sent a memo to its members. “What appears to be documented cases of child abuse and sexual abuse dating back several years with no enforcement action taken by the appropriate agencies is ... mind boggling,” wrote Jerry Lowe.
King was noticeably absent from the controversy that swirled around him. On February 7, 1990, US Magistrate Richard Kopf ordered that King be sent to a federal medical facility in Springfield, Missouri for a “mental health evaluation” without a formal motion from King’s attorneys. King was picked up and dispatched the day before President George H.W. Bush was to speak at a political fundraiser in Omaha. Having named Bush as one of his personal “friends,” King had reportedly purchased a ticket for the event and had subsequently been detained by the Secret Service.
